Additional Information for Context

  1. ClaimVantage’s product is built on the Salesforce.com (SFDC) Lightning platform. The company (in line with SFDC) does 3 product releases a year.
  2. Key new features and functionality are added for each release – some based on user feedback and some based on innovation / new ideas / product differentiation.
  3. A big driver of new features are changes to regulations in the industry, which in the case of the USA, can be different across the 50 States.
  4. ClaimVantage looks for output / deliverables-oriented engineers and architects. This remains the case for roles that include architecture / design responsibilities.
  5. An engineer / architect can be successful in the role, without specific Salesforce (Lightning) development experience, but there will be the requirement to quickly develop that capability.
  6. Specifically in the case of an Architect / Principal Engineer’s role, the expectation is that they will be hands-on as well as provide direction, high level thinking and managerial input. The hands-on approach is an important part of the company’s culture.
  7. The company promotes ownership of work, but especially outcomes and independent thinking while getting along with the team.
  8. In terms of the product roadmap, ClaimVantage is developing more functionality that supports business effectiveness through automation and decision-making tools and and secures customer loyalty through excellent UX.
  9. In the SFDC world, the Lightning Web Component is becoming a key and staple part of the technical platform for development. In time, the SFDC platform plans to allow in other stacks as Salesforce expands it footprint into the core IT / digital infrastructure.
